I'm not sure what template to use with this page. --Mrs. Potato Head 15:08, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

It seems it's like a big shared universe yes? So maybe "fanwork" template with an added collaboration category? I think other shared universes mostly have that template, even if they are large and multi-author, like Pegasus B--RatCreature 15:20, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Thanks. I added that template. I like the MZB quote. I wonder where it's officially from, and if it can be used on another page? --Mrs. Potato Head 15:29, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
If you're still interested, it's from the introduction of her first Darkover anthology, THE KEEPER'S PRICE. The introduction is largely taken up with defending fanfic and theorizing about why women write it. --Greenygal 14:19, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll make a note of the quote's origin. Is there any other article this lovely quote can be used? --Mrs. Potato Head 14:52, 10 January 2011 (UTC)
About that quote...I think we've condensed a little too much there; you shouldn't have to go down to the footnotes to find out that the quote is not originally from H&J fandom. Could we include the part of the quote where Ruth mentions MZB? --Greenygal 20:01, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Better? --Mrs. Potato Head 20:51, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Much. --Greenygal 21:06, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

From a chat transcript (1.9.2012) that I promised to pass along to editors: "After Eastwood's dotty appearence at the Republican convention, I started wondering about Ruth Kurz's old Harry/Johnny fandom. Was given a reference to this site...and was absolutely stunned to see all the references to the old "/" zines! Wow! I guess old fandoms never die... I thought the old H/Js were too obscure even for the tracking power of the internet. Impressive...and a little scary. But thanks for the brief sidetrip into nostalgia." /Lyon --Tiyire 21:38, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

Obscurity can simply make things more of a challenge! Actually, I'm pretty proud of how this page is turning out. I hope fans find it accurate, interesting, and respectful -- all things I aim for at Fanlore. --Mrs. Potato Head 22:21, 5 September 2012 (UTC)
